What are the best sliders for chairs on carpet?
If it’s carpeting, then the glides for chairs in that room should have a plastic, metal, or nylon base. These smooth surfaces will glide evenly across your carpeting without snagging on any loose threads. For glides for chairs on laminate or hardwood floors, we suggest you use felt base glides. Glides are little plastic, felt, or steel protectors attached to the bottoms of chair and table legs for ease of movement and to prevent floor scratches. Glides also reduce friction which prevents stressed joints on your tables & chairs. This means fewer trips to the furniture repair shop! Unfortunately, most office chairs come with built-in caster wheels that are made of cheap plastic. Rolling these wheels against a carpeted surface can cause friction and ruin the carpet. Probably the cheapest option, rubber pads can be used to keep chairs, sofas, and other pieces of furniture from sliding. Simply purchase a set of rubber pads from a home improvement store, such as Lowe’s or Home Depot, and place them under the legs of your furniture.

What can I use to slide furniture on carpet?
The furniture will move easily across the room. On carpet, try smooth cardboard; on bare floors, towels or dishrags are a good bet. Magic Sliders are my favorite go to product. While you can always grab furniture sliders to move that big furniture, a bit of aluminum foil should help serve the same purpose. Just stick it under the furniture’s legs (shiny side up; the dull side is actually more slippery) and it should drag across the carpet much easier. Use frisbees to slide furniture longer distances. Their durable plastic design makes them easy to slide across the carpet. Make sure they’re not too big to use. Turn the frisbees upside down, and place the furniture legs on the bottom side. The legs will be secured by the frisbees’ upward-facing curves. Using rug tape is an effective and simple solution to stop your rug from moving. All you need to do is apply the tape to the edges of the rug and place it on your carpet. You can stretch out carpeting using an inexpensive tool called a carpet knee kicker. Another method is to jump on a section of the carpet with enough momentum to force the carpet outward to the wall.
